    I wouldn't have been able to recite them off by heart if that's what you mean. But everytime I listened to And One i looked up the lyrics. So awesome!

    Not gonna lie, today is the first time that I saw the official lyrics. That's what I meant. Was that the first time you saw the official lyrics?

    Whoa, I've never actually known the whole verse but I was way off on the lyrics I thought I knew.

    Hands Held High is a song I really love and IMO it belongs to the best lyrics. Though, I Have Not Begun and When They Come For Me are also really amazing.

    Yeah I had a couple of the words fairly wrong, especially the second quarter of the verse. But apart from that it pretty much matches what I saw.

    I've always loved these lyrics from "Forgotten"

    A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats
    On down the street till the wind is gone
    The memory now is like the picture was then
    When the paper's crumpled up it can't be perfect again

    I don't entirely trust what's on linknpark.com; in my mind, some unpaid intern transcribed them by ear ;D but most of that is what I go by anyway

    Mike's lyrics in Forgotten are the best part of the song. I wish the chorus was a bit better in that song,, it's not bad but could have been better

    I think his verses on Frgt/10 are so much better though, but I love them on the original, too.

    I loved all his rapping on the Hybrid Theory EP. Seriously, Part Of Me, Step Up, Carousel. All some of his best. I think he was at his peak at that point with his rhyme scheme. It seemed after that he got less concerned about his flow and more about the whole production of the songs as a whole.

    I really like his raps on the Xero tape too. Fuse is probably one of my top favourites off that.

    Stick 'n' Move is the best song of that tape. It's perfect.
